Nothing Phone (1) could be followed by two new true wireless headphones
Nothing will follow its much-heralded Nothing Phone (1) smartphone with not one but two sets of true wireless headphones, according to a new rumor.
Nothing has a set of true wireless earbuds under its belt already, of course. The company’s first product, long before the Nothing Phone (1), was the Nothing Ear (1). And it was very good too.
According to tipster Mukul Sharma (via Gizmochina), aka @stufflistings, Nothing is working on two follow-ups to Nothing Ear (1). Both are said to be currently “under internal testing” in a number of European and Asian regions.
One of these new Nothing true wireless headphones is a direct sequel to the Ear (1), which will likely be called the Nothing Ear (2).
The other would be the Nothing Ear(1) Stick, which is apparently a revised version of the original Ear(1). Previous leaks from Sharma have suggested the Stick will come in a long, clear case – hence the name.
Another suggestion is that the Stick will lack removable silicone earbuds, with a reworked semi-in-ear design and no ANC, which should lead to lower costs.
In our 4.5-star review for the Nothing Ear (1), we labeled them “A good set of true wireless earbuds, which offer solid overall performance and a distinctive design on a relatively modest budget.”
The Ear (1) also debuted the London brand’s signature see-through design, which of course would be carried over quite dramatically into the Nothing Phone (1).
